Tairaa, I'm not surprized Frodo took a powder, this is very typical of the outrageous behavior many of these kind of people do. My wife was a clinical hypnotherapist, where she spent a 1 1/2 years studying this in an accredited school for hypnotherapy. One time at a mall she represented the school in a job fair, as a carrer to be in, and school to learn it. They were blindsided by 1/2 dozen born again Christians, who desended on them, chastized them for doing the work of the devil, quoted a bunch of bible verves, said they were dealing in the occult, were evil, and did everything short of casting them into Hell.
My wife, and the others begged them to stop and hear them out, and listen to what they did at the school, but all they would to was preach and dictate, condemn them to damnation, becasue they were sure what they thought was the story. It was the worst case of total ignorance I've ever herd of, and if you knew my wife and the others with her, they are soft spoken, kind, and and caring people, who give care to terminal cancer victims. But they were chastized in view of dozens, if not a hundreds people, who were horrified at how they decended upon them, they hi-tailed it away refusing to even listen to any of them. They were grouped in with false prophets, astrologers, fortune tellers(like the born agains don't predict the end is coming), and do the work of the devil.
I take real offence when so called believers in God, are so ignorant they don;t know the differnce between real evil people and those doing work with terminal cancer victims. With clinical hypnotherapy, they helped many cancer victims deal with severe pain in their final days. This was something they did for free and had regular people they helped weekly, until they died. This was the work of the devil to these ignorant idiots, and they wouldn;t even allow them to defend themselves. They did work to help people overcome compulsive drinking, eating and smoking, other fears and habits, confidence, etc. It was not stage hypnosis where they make people dance like a chicken.
Born agains believe in something that shows their own lack of faith. They believe meditation or hypnosis alters the mind to allows the devil to enter it somehow. The truth is, during hypnosis, you are fully aware of your soroundings, you are just in a very relaxed and suggestable state. You can not be told to do something you would not ordinarily do, like go load your guns and kill the neighbors. The born agains are really insecure to imagaine people are so weakminded the devil will walk into your heart, and kick the Lord right out, taking over your soul.
I have zero tolerance for tactics like Frodos, and the attitude that does more to drive people away from finding the Lord. This was one of the questions he refused to address, and feels like "He can do no wrong".
